GERMANY, November 18, 2013 – Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) now offers the fully flat-bed seat in the BusinessElite cabin on all its services between Germany and the United States, following the introduction of the new full flat-bed seats on flights between Dusseldorf’s International Airport and Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. Delta now offers a total of over 3,000 fully flat-bed seats per week on all Delta’s services between Germany and the United States.
“Germany is an important part of our trans-Atlantic network and I am delighted that we can now offer our frequent business travellers full flat-bed seats on all our services from Germany, including Dusseldorf,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president Europe, Middle East and Africa. “The design of Delta’s new BusinessElite seats optimizes each passenger’s space, giving them privacy to work or relax in order to arrive at their destination ready for a day’s business.”
Customers flying in BusinessElite on Delta flights between Germany and the United States enjoy forward-facing seats that convert to a 180-degree fully flat-bed and offer direct aisle access in a 1x2x1 configuration. All feature a 10.6” individual screen and a broad range of on demand entertainment in addition to 110v AC power source and USB port.
Delta is also offering Westin Heavenly In-Flight bedding, designed and manufactured exclusively for Delta by Westin Hotels & Resorts, in BusinessElite. In addition to the new Westin Heavenly In-Flight bedding, BusinessElite passengers will receive Delta’s new Tumi amenity kit featuring Malin+Goetz products such as Neroli Hand & Body Lotion and Lip Moisturizer.
Delta has also invested in its economy class with seats that provide additional legroom, adjustable headrests, personal in-seat entertainment screens with over 350 films, 250 TV shows, 100 hours of HBO, 4,500 songs and 30 games as well as USB power at each seat.
